Settlements reached in three GSU nursing student wrongful death suits
Two cases remain outstanding
Just days before the one-year anniversary of a fiery crash that took the lives of five Georgia Southern University students, attorneys announced that “substantial” settlements were reached in wrongful death lawsuits regarding three of the victims. Friday, April 22, marks the date one year ago on which Caitlyn Nicole Baggett of Millen, Emily Elizabeth Clark of Powder Springs, Abbie Lorene DeLoach of Savannah, Morgan Bass of Leesburg and Catherine “McKay” Pittman of Alpharetta lost their lives when a tractor-trailer plowed into them as they sat in their vehicles in a line of traffic that was halted due to cleanup efforts following a previous wreck. Families of all five victims filed wrongful death lawsuits in Bryan County in May.
